  1. It sounds like you need Tech Connect , the tech support would able to answer your questions and point you to right direction, along with your local  Rockwell / Allen Bradley distributor . You can also use your Tech Connect to utilize software (such as Integrated Architecture Builder) to migrate to a newer platform and verify your new I/Os chassis and save you trouble and time.     Integrated Architecture Builder Integrated Architecture Builde Integrated Architecture Builder
  2. simatic APT

    thank you for your response,  i do have the manual but it is just not clear how the units are executed and just wonder if someone has hand-on experience on this topic...
  3. simatic APT

    I have a program for 555 controller  in APT with multiple sequences and units. How I do i know the program executing order ( which unit or sequence is run first)? just trying to understand more about the APT program structure.
  4. with a controller, you can force input to verify the logic
  5. When I try to open the a project ,the error " Failure opening Reference Data Editor template file" ,does this mean the project is corrupted or missing files?
  6. I have a program that was developed in modicon Concept, dont know what version it is. I tried to  open  with the version 2.6 XL but when i tried to open  the .prj file, it says the version does not match..is there a way or how to convert this program to version 2.6 Concept? 
  7. for this specific problem, you just have to change   BOOL[64] data declaration to  BOOL[65]  and you can use  BOOL[64] bit in your program
  8. i don't think you can add Micrologix 1100 to CCW (at least  not with the  version 10 i use anyway) but PV 800 support modbus and you can use modbus  TCP or modbus serial to communicate... 
  9.  i am looking for a way to import tags to AOI (Add On Instruction)  or work around. I use rslogix 5000 v 19 for a project  and  i only see option to export tag but not importing
  10. i dont see the AOI I created in  Data Types\User-Defined  and dont see any importing option either... In is v19 rslogix 5000 you refering to?
  11. I just want to import the tags to AOI ,not importing the entire AOI. Ideally, in Excel CSV format just as Export option but i guess i can't afford to be picky  now 
  12. Managed Switches

    if you have no problem with un-managed switch, you should stick with it. However, In your current setup using un-managed switch, your PLC will  broadcast data to all channel/ports.  If your network grows bigger with more nodes/connection or if you start to experience with dropping data or bad connection from time to time ,managed switch could help. The biggest advantage would be you can set up directly communication  between certain devices vs broadcasting to every channel in a unmanged switch case (for example if you use managed  switch your PLC can send  and/or receive only data to and from HMI  by change the setting of the individual ports that PLC and HMI are plugged in). By doing this, you can reduce data traffic between all devices connecting to the switch and thus more robust network.
  13. I need to know what is the best to good solution out there for historical trending data for ControlLogix or SLC PLC ?
  14. i suspect it has to to with the rack/backplane  but since you don't have another rack to verify  ,you can try to move RTD module to another empty slot  if you  still have spare lot on the rack.. If you do, would try both faulty RTD module to the new slot ,change the logic to read from new slot and see if you still have same problem.  
  15. PLC tag issue

    you should not delete the tags being used on HMI because ,for very least,it would create a error message  on HMI. to find tags used on HMI, generally you have to open HMI application in  Factorytalk View Studio and look under"Tags".However, it could be tricky because the PLC programmer can use direct address of the PLC tags in the HMI so it is not easy to tell if the PLC tags are used on HMI or not .If the tags are not used in logic ,it could be safe to delete  but you have to  absolutely sure they are not used.If the PLC tells you the tags is being used externally ,i'd would check again .Be carefult because the tags could be used by other PLCs or other HMIs over the network. Unless you have a very good reason to delete them,I usually just leave those tags alone unless if they don't hurt anything but that is just me  
  16. unless you know  what changed in the channel settings  ,it is not easy to get back in.If you are absolute sure you have the latest and correct PLC program ,you can reset the processor to factory default setting and re download the program.Check this forum thread for factory reset steps.Hope this helps! http://forums.mrplc.com/index.php?/topic/13509-reset-503-to-factory-default-settings/#comment-66258
  17. I am no mean a Controlnet expert and I am looking to hear from other members about this topic but i believe you still have to reconfig the network using Rsnetworx ,physically remove the node and put the terminator after the last node ( in your case put the terminator on the last T-tap)   . Simply removing the node will cause the fault in the network since the keeper is actively scanning all the nodes in ControlNet. communicating with the Depending on the node communication ( schedule/unscheduled) ,you might also have to reschedule the network. Hope this helps!
  18. RSLogix5000 Sturctured Text

    it is likely you have Rslogix 5000 standard license  so to use structured text ,you need to  purchase upgrade option  to get professional edition. I know before ,you can also purchase some sort an add-on license so you can use structured text or function block but i am not sure since they are migrating to Studio 5000  now....
  19. Does the ENBT show the correct IP address that you set on its diagnostic  screen ?  I  assume you set the card correctly since you were able to ping the card but  i just want to make sure. My guess it would be your Rslinx driver setup. what driver you use in Rslinx (Ethernet/IP Driver or Ethernet driver)  and how did you set it? BTW,you don't need to cross over cable. 
  20. just my 2 cents you don't need a crossover cable ,the port has auto-detect feature and would work fine with regular CAT-5 cable 
  21.  i see , i dont think it is supported by Windows 10 ...yet  
  22. SLC5/05 error fault

    it seems you have math overflow trap in your program and sometimes it is not easy to troubleshooting . For me, going online and  test to eliminate  suspiciously logic  one by one  work best.   I think you also need to reset the S:1/13 also so the program can continue run ,I would reset S:5/0  and S:1/13 if you just simply  want the program to run and ignore the error . However, this does not fix the issue that you have overflow in the program. the signed integers are 16 bit so it  has range  -32,768 or 32,767 for the floating points, there are more to it .The discussion is  here you can check it out  http://forums.mrplc.com/index.php?/topic/16332-slc-500-floating-point-limit/   Hope this helps!
  23.  i know this might be obvious but did you try to restart the computer a couple times? maybe the software has interfere issues with other software on your PC... When is the last time it worked? if it did ,try to be back track to see any software you installed that could cause interfere. if not try to reinstall the FT 7 Studio .Hope this helps!  
  24. since this is a  "XIC" and use in the ladder as input condition , it will be same in one scan cycle
